Archiving mail in Gmail:
Archiving moves messages out of your inbox and into All Mail, letting you tidy up your inbox without deleting anything. Messages you archive can be found in All Mail, in any labels youâ€™ve applied, and by searching Gmail. When someone responds to a message youâ€™ve archived, the conversation containing that message will reappear in your inbox.
To archive messages:
1. Select a message by checking the box next to the senderâ€™s name.
2. Click Archive.
If you have a conversation open, you can archive it by clicking Archive at the top of the page.
To move mail back to your inbox:
1. Click All Mail.
2. Check the box next to the senderâ€™s name.
3. Click Move to Inbox.
What is 'All Mail'?
All Mail is your archive, a storage place for all the mail you've ever sent or received, but have not deleted.
You can see a list of archived messages by clicking All Mail. If the All Mail link is not visible by default in your inbox, click on the More dropdown menu under your Labels list to visualize it. Archived messages are also available by searching, and under any assigned labels.
To archive mail:
